Weekly Challenge #147 from I am the Diva

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....

This week, Laura's challenge over on I am the Diva was to include one of her own tangles - Boo *Kee - an incredibly versatile and yet very simple tangle that immediately brought to mind snowballs,(Laura's own submission) snowmen (Ledenzer's glorious take) and other jolly things.

I was tempted to go very geometrical but then saw that Kailey had beaten me to (and probably at) it! So I thought about pearls ...and then saw that Debra and Dawn had both offered some beautiful pearls. I'm not going to link to every single entry but I really enjoyed looking at what everyone else has done this week - I so often feel very inspired by what I see (and yet must confess, I also feel very small!) and Boo*Kee is obviously a real winner!

I am beginning to feel a little Christmassy too so here is my take...baubles...
Thanks for looking.

  4. I never even thought of making them big, like you did. That's the fun part of this, looking at everyone's take on the same thin. Really nice piece!

    1. Many thanks, Jean. I did several 'practise' ideas to start with and really wanted to do pearls...but saw quite a few lovely versions of this idea had already been done. I also felt that Christmas was coming along and saw a chance to decorate a few baubles! Such a versatile tangle - there've been some wonderful submissions to the challenge. Axxx
